    Not a cud.

    Worn die / die erosion. ;)
    It is very common on cents.

    Its called a Ridge Ring and is caused by a worn out die

    Info from www.error-ref.com

    The periphery of this 1988 cent shows development of a “ridge ring”, a form of die wear common in zinc cents. Here the field portion of the die has retreated, and this has resulted in thinning of the motto IN GOD WE TRUST
